Jiwon is a 4th year PhD candidate of CardioLab at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. Together with Professor Maaike Kleinsmann, she has been developing a design tool to create a patient journey map based on online patient stories and various machine learning techniques. This aims to identify the patients’ intrinsic needs and challenges during their care path and supports the design of patient-centred care services and systems.
As part of the HS Young Board, Jiwon wants to contribute to making impactful societal changes: making a fair starting point for all children and young adults. She wants to make young researchers’ views to be heard by the entire community and foster opportunities for them to contribute to the changes with their novel ideas.
